They talk about the return of vintage packaging, the fan vote, some audio of one of the actors talking about being turned into action figures, what it was like meeting Mark Hamill and they go into listener emails. Good episode.

TSW Kessel Run: As a VIP member of Talk Star Wars, I now have access to their special daily podcast called TSW Kessel Run. It’s a solo podcast hosted by Marc that’s a short format show and typically focuses on a certain topic. It’s good audio quality and they’re fun. For instance on the 23rd, Marc talked about Rosario Dawson’s comments on playing Ahsoka, while the 24th featured the rumored news that the guy behind Mr. Robot is being courted to write a Star Wars standalone film. You can get an idea of what the episodes are like as they released one episode to the public, though this one is a little abnormal as its extra long and talks about the whole idea behind the Kessel Run shows, but still you get an idea what they’re like.
